Tip No 3: Train The Eye

The best thing that you can do to improve your photography is to train your eye and your mind by looking at what’s around you in an original and critical manner. In my last tip, I mentioned the importance of learning to see. Training your eye is the best advice I can give you and I can’t emphasize enough how important it is.

Look for an interesting effect of the light available, a special moment where food or people become the photograph or maybe a detail in the interior or the food itself.

As I mentioned before, I don’t shoot in studios and I only use natural light because that’s the way I like to do things, I love the spontaneity and the challenge of not being in control of my surrounding but I constantly train my eye to be a step ahead and anticipate a shot.

I focus on the photography first and then I find out the details like what’s on the dish or who’s doing what.

Keep practicing!
